ghare: Great Justice: ..../the insect protein is also healthier for you, though I'm sure it will be drowning in sugar, fat, and salt once it is processedSays who? I mean, seriously, that's a fairly broad statement with a pretty strong whiff of woo-woo.
ghare: The Paleo Diet, and this article, is nonsense
Great Justice: Given that insect protein is considerably cheaper to produce than animal protein, there is a good chance that processed insect foods will begin to appear on the market within ten to twenty years.Honestly, if you were given two "chicken nuggets" and told one was made of insect protein while the other was made of chicken protein, and you couldn't tell the difference, would it still really bother you to know you would be eating bugs if you ate both? Or would the ability to buy twice as many for the same price win you over?/the insect protein is also healthier for you, though I'm sure it will be drowning in sugar, fat, and salt once it is processed

lelio: I thought humans were growing in size.
drxym: ghare: Says who? I mean, seriously, that's a fairly broad statement with a pretty strong whiff of woo-woo.It is nonsense because it's based on pseudoscience and broken logic, to wit: our paleolithic ancestors didn't eat wheat and look how healthy they were!Yes and that may have had something to do with the fact they weren't a bunch of sedentary fat asses shoving calorie rich food stuffs down their distended pieholes. Their calorific intake, the amount they got from foraging / hunting / fishing etc. was balanced out by the exertions of their lifestyle.The paleo diet may "work" but only the way any other diet or indeed the standard food pyramid works - cut out or moderate the high calorie items and you should lose weight. All that other BS about ancestors or the gluten in wheat is just brain addled new age garble.The only people who benefit from avoiding wheat are those who are genuinely intolerant to it, e.g. coeliacs.
NakedDrummer: Animals are lazy.
Russ1642: Well there are whole books written to counter the paleo diet bullshiat. Paleo Fantasy by Marlene Zuk is of them.
NakedDrummer: Animals are lazy. The theory suggests Paleo era humans had plenty of rest and downtime, they weren't training for the ironman.
NakedDrummer: Grains and legumes for the most part have to be processed and some are outright toxic without being processed/cooked.
NakedDrummer: lectins, gluten, phytates among other things. Never had steak tartare? sushi? most meats it's preferable to cook to help disgestion, but can absolutely be handled by human digestion raw. The problems arise with bad meat sources, CAFO, antibiotics, hormones, etc. Grains and legumes for the most part have to be processed and some are outright toxic without being processed/cooked.
